Just saw the video of the Western TD. Floyd was slow on the play, but can we really say that he's not ready to play based on that one play? It could have just been one of those bad plays players have once in awhile. What do you think.
JT Floyd Speed
He can't burned on another 20 or so yard pass. He didn't look very good. Hopefully Turner is learning the playbook fast.
Not sure why you got negged, I agree with your assessment.
i agree. though it isn't just speed; he doesn't change direction well. good CBs change direction with little wasted movement and without losing that much speed.
Coach Gibson said before the season started that Floyd is mentally ready but not physically ready. I'd imagine that statement reflects his explosiveness, speed, and reaction times. Floyd may need another 1-2 years before he contributes, or maybe moving him to safety would be better for him.
Sounds like a good kid who's doing everything he can to get better, but I doubt he'll have enough speed to play CB or FS in another 1-2 years. Maybe he can eventually play SS. DBs at this level need to cover a lot of ground.
Is Teric Jones a viable option? He was alright in practice, but I think going against Golden is a different beast.
yeah there's (probably) no way that Teric Jones is ready to contribute against ND.
Both of those ND receivers are studs. Hopefully, Justin Turner is ready for some meaningful PT
get banged up?
JT will eventually catch on. He is learning. But, for now I would rather have Floyd Simmons backing up Cissoko.
Did you see that interception he had?
When the announcers said that, I was like WTF? Simmons? REEEAALLLY???
Oh that was Cissoko. They just don't know what they are talking about. End confusion.
RR eluded that Floyd was a little nervous and needed to get his legs under him (something like that). More importantly, Woolfolk bit hard on the play and he had his legs under him. He won't be able to do that on Saturday.
Teric Jones wouldn't be any better than Floyd in man coverage. The kid just started playing cornerback.
The thing that scares me about Floyd is that after the pass is completed, it doesn't even look like Floyd is sprinting. He totally gave up on the play as soon as the ball got past him. To me, that says he's not mentally ready to play, either. He wasn't hustling and it obviously hurt his confidence. That being said . . . there aren't many options.
